And when you're done just click onto the Caring Hats facebook page and PM Una for address to post your hat(s) to!
As Una herself says:" Focus Ireland estimates that there are up to 5,000 people homeless in Ireland at any one time.

How about you?
Would you care to join us in helping to keep homeless heads warm this Winter?
Don't forget to tell all your friends, and maybe make it a project for your knitting circle groups too!
